Pallbearers for Miss Watkins were George B. Wilcox, Dr. F. L. Thomas, Tolliver Burtis, Luke Pat- ranella, F. A. Lipscomb, and W. F. Davis. Captain Watkins has been con nected with the Building and Grounds Department of A. & M. for 30 years, retiring September 1, 1937. He came here in 1907, and was for many years a familiar sight around the campus until he became ill. He was born in Mar shall, Texas, He was 83 years old when he died and his daughter was 38. Killough— (Continued from Page 1) Service, and the National Cotton Council were the factors helping cotton on the road to recovery. Al though cotton is at a low ebb at present, conditions point to an early rise. That cotton producers must lower cost of production by more economic methods of har vesting and must increase the yield per acre by the use of fer tilizer and insectisides was said by Killough to be the two main factors necessary before better prices could be secured. Earl Parson, graduate ’20, was among those who attended the meeting. Parsons is a well-known buyer for the firm Of Clayton & Co. of Houston. Fountain— (Continued from Page 1) members of former graduate clas ses. The flagpole in front of the administration building is a gift from the class of ’39 and the flag pole in front of the academic build ing is a contribution from the grad uating class of ’34. In addition to the new fountain members of the class of ’38 are working on plans to construct a platform for yell practices. Ex-Student— (Continued from Page 1) resentative even though the car was not noted for speed. He kept the Model-T nearly four years and sold it for $5.00 less than he gave for it. He had no opponent for the representative chair his third term there but didn’t fail to cam paign during that time. When Marvin Jones was appoint ed as a Federal Judge, Worley im mediately announced his candidacy for the seat in Congress which Jones vacated. He is the same age as was Jones when he was first elected to Congress. Worley had six opponents in the race for Congress. So, Worley goes from a seat in a Model-T Ford to a seat in Con gress in six years—Mr. Worley Goes To Washington. Chem Course— (Continued from Page 1) vestigated the character of the course offered here. “This approval covers the course of study for those students who make chemistry their major study for degrees and states that in the judgment of the ACS, Texas A. & M. College possesses the facilities and offers instructions for students to become specialized for the pro fessional training chemists require in the field of research in industry and government,” Dean Brooks ex plained. The University of Texas and Rice Institute are the only other colleges in Texas which have received this approval. -SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1940 Concert— (Continued from Page 1) the observer will see that for him, music is something artistic, not a hob-nob something but for his life, and so we find him using only the slightest, simplest gestures; the graceful, circular movements of his hands and flexible though magic fingers of his hand, Kryl moulds and forms his music such as a fine sculptor would do, model ling each phrase, each passage, and seemingly at times, each indi vidual note not a cold harsh, mechanical time beater, but a living part of the music him self. Katherine Landry, soprano, will appear on this program in oper atic arias and in songs which will appeal to the music public. May Hopkins, young beautiful American harpist, will also appear as solo ist. Pravoslach Krch, Czech viol inist of note, will accompany the symphony as soloist.

College has on its campus the largest collection of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphib ians, and fish in the southwest. These specimens, used in teaching and research, are housed partly in the Animal Husbandry Pavilion and partly on the top floor of the Agri- cutural Engineering Building. The collection consists of more than 1,500 specimens of mammals, 2500 birds, 500 reptiles and am phibians, and 20,000 fish. Most of these specimens were collected in Texas by personnel in the Fish and Game Department and the Texas Cooperative Wildlife Research unit at Texas A. & M. College and by staff members of the Texas Game Fish, and Oyster Commission. A few specimens have been secured from such places as Mexico, Asia, and Africa. This collection has a value of several thousand dollars and constitutes one of the most important bases for wildlife work in Texas. “It is useful not only in teaching and research, but it is an added service to the people of Tex as who are becoming more and more conservation conscious.” Dr. W. B. Davis of the Fish & Game Department pointed out, “as we are now in a position to identify this or that bird, mammal, or fish for them.” The collection, now four years old, is sponsored jointly by the depart ment of Fish and -Game, School of Agriculture, and the Texas Co operative Wildlife Research Unit with Dr. Davis in charge of the division of birds, mammals, am phibians, and reptiles, and Dr. Kelshaw Bonham in charge of the fishes.

STUDENT CO-OP 1 Block East of North Gate Although a certain English pro fessor calls the old cowboy spurs “horse riding instruments,” spurs at A. & M. are not nearly so scarce as this would indicate. In a search for spurs to use for demonstration in a public speaking class, an A. & M. student found more spurs than he could carry. In just four rooms from four different boys he found sev- ejn pairs of well-worn cowboy en pairs of well-worn cowboy spurs and several pairs of military spurs. But even this was not the total. On his way back to his room four other boys offered their spurs. There were calf roping spurs, bronc riding spurs, bull riding spurs, spurs for short men, spurs for tall men, in fact, spurs of near ly every description. One pair had an interesting his- TUES. - WED., OCT. 29-29 3:30 - 6:45 Each Day tory. They were made by an east ern blacksmith for a short man; and because the blacksmith thought the man would need a long-shank ed spur to reach his horse, the spurs had a very long shank. The funny thing was that anyone fam iliar with riding knows that tall long-legged men wear long-shanked spurs and short-legged men wear short shanked spurs. k\wv AXSILVVULY HALL ■//e made het LIVE DANGEROUSLY A story of turbulent love . .. bringing together the emo tional intensity of George Raft and the smoldering beau* presents GEORGE JOAN RAFT BENNETT The HOUSE ACROSS the BAT SATURDAY, OCT. 26 6:45 and 8:30 CIGARETTE THAT SATISFIES SUSANNE TURNER I MARY STEELE and JEAN DONNELLY members of the ■> Women Flyers of America MORE ANd Copyright 1940, Liccm & Mthu Tojaq^j q More steriield AMERICA SMOKES THE CIGARETTE THAT SATISFIES
